Western Word of the Week - Throw Your Hat In the Ring - #WesternWordoftheWeek #WesternWednesdays


Thanks for returning to our Western Word of the Day column. The next few weeks I'm drifting a little bit away from what we think of as truly "western" words to focus on some other vocabulary term that I've learned and wanted to share. Since we're in the midst of presidential campaigns and races, it seemed like a good time to talk about some of the terms we hear in those all the time...

Throw Your Hat In the Ring - to compete in a race

Origin of this term: Boxers would throw their hat into the boxing ring for a chance to compete

History Channel, "America's Secret Slang" video series
